Fire Camp Kitchen 1966

I found these 40-year old photos of a wilderness fire camp on the Yellowstone National Park website. The camp is identified as the Buffalo Fire Camp. I couldn't locate any information on the fire.

This picture shows the cooking area and supply tent.

The camp crew wouldn't be able to cut poles for the tent and cooking tarp today, even if they've dead and down.

Three wood-burning stoves make up the main cooking units for the fire camp. These are either wilderness pack stoves or military surplus field ranges from the pre-World War I era. These stove were used by the U.S. Army up until the start of World War II.
